I'm now using Gmail and wondered if it's possible to set up sub-folders in the Inbox as in Outlook Express and Windows Mail. I found it very useful having sub-folders for various specific people, being able to keep their emails all together.

I haven't found any way of doing this.

Actually, Gmail doesn't use folders. To help you organize your mail more effectively, Gmail uses labels instead.

Hey raw, thanks for that. Never thought of looking under "Labels". Just what I need. :thumbsup:

Yep, Raw is right!
I love this Gmail's option. It is great that messages can automatically be categorized under the new label.
